Stir-Fried Flowering Chives with Roast Pork


Stir-Fried Flowering Chives with Roast Pork

I've cooked this very simple dish but packed a punch in terms of nutrition, ermmm well except for the fatty bits of the roast pork (siew yuk) :p Flowering Chives can be found easily these days at the wet markets and supermarkets but I know quite a number of people dislike them cos they have a distinct pungent flavour. So it's either one likes it or hates it.

There are only 2 main ingredients ie. chopped roast pork and flowering chives cut into sections. Seasonings needed were chopped garlic, oyster sauce, salt (only when necessary), a few grains of sugar and white pepper powder. Easy peasy... first, fry chopped garlic in oil till fragrant before adding the roast pork. Stir and brown the pork a bit. Add in the flowering chives and stir. Next, pour in a wee bit of water and add in the seasonings. Cover with a lid for a few minutes so that the flowering chives can turn a little soft with the steam generated. If you prefer them to be crunchy, do not cover too long. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt if necessary or you can add more oyster sauce. Dish up and serve hot with rice.

Nice recipe. I have cooked this dish. I like to add carrots and some chopped onions. Roast pork is nice. Prawns are good too.

Yummy! (Though for me, I guess the flowering chives would be just an excuse for greens so I can eat the siu yoke to my heart's content! Muhahaha...)

Ah yes!!! Sometimes we use garlic chives as well to fry this dish. I might even throw in the sauce that they give to go with the roast pork LOL

Hmmm, you can find belacan at supermarkets/hypermarkets/mini markets on top of wet markets but they're not pre-roasted though
